The factories’ IT engineers realize the potential value of IoT and large-scale data analytics in three ways: analyzing large volumes of data, identifying the most useful data, and reporting that data in a way that meets the needs and expectations of process engineers, yield engineers, and factory managers.
They have found several use cases for advanced analytics in their manufacturing envi...ronment:
* Increasing up-time for manufacturing tools with advanced analytics
* Accelerating factory output
* Detecting and controlling faults with tool sensor data
With tools based on this approach, factory engineers and managers can do analyses that used to take four hours in just 30 seconds.
